Ahh yes, it is that time of year again. I am refering to “back to school” time. In this case, I don’t mean lunch boxes and yellow buses. Instead I mean booze and frat parties. It is officially the time that the city’s college students return to campus. Right now, it is just the early arrivals, but already I notice an increase in the number of dorky parents around.
They are sooo easy to spot. First of all, mom and dad stick out like sore thumbs. Then factor in that they walk aound with the city map in front of them at all times, so you can’t miss them. The final confirmation is that they usually have the younger sibiling in tow. Those little suckers can be identified by the utter misery on their faces because they still haven’t been able to ride the ferris wheel in Toys-R-Us as promised. Plus, if they just entered that awkward tween period, they are probably horrified to be seen with the dork parents.
Soon, the subway system in the campus areas will be flooded with out of town families that have no idea where they are going. I am usually nice to them and help them figure out where they are going.
Then again, there’s always the temptation to have a little fun. 🙂 Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
